Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul;  He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou prepares a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will  dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
He will fill your mouth with laughter
And your lips with happy shouting......  Job 8:21
